iPad 3 More Durable than iPad 2?


Apple's latest generation of iPad was able to withstand a drop test better than its predecessor. GizmoSlip, a new tech blog that features durability tests of popular devices, destroys a device if it fails and gives it way if it survives.

Houston, TX (PRWEB) March 17, 2012

Apple's new iPad 3 trumped its predecessor in a series of dropped tests. GizmoSlip, a newly launched YouTube tech blog has performed drop tests on numerous devices including both generations of Apple's flagship tablet. While the iPad 2 failed to survive even a three foot drop on its corner, the new iPad 3 survived the same drop but at four feet as well as a drop on its back, also from 4 feet. Despite the iPad 3 failing the last drop on its face, it still proved more durable than the iPad 2.

As consumers weigh the advantages of purchasing an iPad 3 over over keeping an older generation iPad or purchasing it at a discounted price, durability may prove to be a deciding factor for many. If you want to see the iPad drop tests, you can check them out here:
